Career: Citizen

Watermarked PDF

I kept one eye peeled over my shoulder. Across the table from me, The Colonel sipped his tea. Berlin busied himself more with tucking into his…what did the server call it? I forget…with great relish, not even looking about from time to time to see if danger was afoot.

Out of force of habit, I glanced around the small café. It seemed to attract quite the clientele, from arrogant milespire professionals down to a few sewernauts, who were engaged in an animated game of chaax over steaming cups of kaff.

“Would you gentles like anything else?” I started at the server’s question. I hadn’t even heard her approach! The Colonel, however, looked sedately up at her from his pad. “Another cup of tea, please, and looks like my friend here needs another helping.”

 “Bel…relax,” The Colonel said to me over the rim of his reader After the server left. “We’re safe here; I chose this place for a reason.”

I know, Colonel; it’s just…you, Berlin and Vajra have been at this longer than I have. It wasn’t that long ago that I was,” I lowered my voice a bit, “just a mundane like these guys here. Not being chased by half the galaxy.”

The Colonel regarded me earnestly. “And you remember that we chose you to travel with us not out of pity, but because we saw something in you that we didn’t think you knew you had: spirit.”

The common folk found on every world in the interstellar government form the backbone of every society space travelers encounter. It’s assumed in Cepheus Engine (CE) and the Original Science Fiction Roleplaying Game (OSFRPG) that these people don’t ever leave their worlds of origin, performing routine tasks, and avoiding excitement and adventure. This is mere misconception. Mainstream citizens have yearnings and ambition, too. The difference is that they have fewer avenues to act upon such yearning and ambition. Thus, all too many live Walter Mitty-like existences, dreaming of being the star-spanning hero with gun blazing in one hand and beautiful companion in the other, while consigning themselves to being mere pawns in whatever game their society has set out for them.

Now CE and OSFRPG characters of whatever origin can become all they can be, at least within the confines of their smallish existence. Career: Citizens is intended to offer Players a chance to build a hero from the ground up, becoming more than a mere paper-shuffler; and also offer Referees a way to introduce NPCs who are more than just a name and a throwaway role. The file offers three character types to generate, several new skills, and a new mustering out benefit tailored for non-adventuring types.

Career: Citizens. Because sometimes, ordinary is good enough.

    Original electronic
    Scanned image
    These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

    For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

    For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
    Original electronic format
    These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
